I forgot to lock my bicycle
so its world with me ended.
The day otherwise is full,
now walking past the deli,
now the patio bar, where half
those summering there
have a demi-glace on, their pandemics 
unlocked―

August, what a terrible poem.
Recycled clouds and cans of June
the sky starts to stink like
your old elementary school again,
someone taking your hand and pulling 
you out of the sun where you will
draw automatic birds, automatically
gone to seed―

there’s an atmosphere today of old
tablecloth weighted with a bowl of bright
exotic fruit you’ve no 
correlation for, but the brightness
is promising, someone stole your bike
picking all this for you―
